Mere Curiosity

What was your biggest crochet adventure last year? Besides testing all these lovely patterns mine was Mere Curiosity!

In the last year Pam Knighton-Haener from A Yarn of Serendipity has started a design group within her group of testers. Late last summer, I finally started to develop a design together with her. The result was Mere Curiosity.

What an adventure and what fun! Each of us designed a few rounds and then passed on the design to the other to continue.
Most of the work – I knew that already – was writing down the pattern with all it’s details like abbreviations, stitches used etc. Finally the pattern was tested in Pam’s test group in December. I’m just making the last little changes and then the pattern will be available in my Ravelry store, stay tuned!
We will donate the proceeds from the sales to Unicef to help Ukraine.

The finished square has 39 stitches per side and fits to Pam’s other squares. The final size of course will depend on the yarn and hook size you use.

For our samples we had the following results
